Know Your Rights
Accidents can happen to the best of people under the best of circumstances. One of the worst types of injury, a spinal cord injury can affect your entire body, starting from the neck and back, potentially paralyzing a victim from head to toe. This happens most commonly in a car accident, but can also occur during a simple fall, as part of an act of violence, or even during recreational sports.
The impact on the lives of the victims and their families can be devastating. Rising medical costs can drain your savings, and the emotional toll can be even more costly. If you or a family member have been in an accident and suffered a spinal cord injury, the Antelope Valley spinal cord injury lawyer team at Kuzyk Law may be able to file a lawsuit and get financial compensation for your physical injuries and losses.

What Is a Spinal Cord Injury?
A spinal cord injury is any damage to the spinal cord. The spinal cord is a bundle of nerves housed within the spinal column, more commonly known as the “backbone,” which transmits messages between the brain and the body.
An injury or trauma to the spinal cord could result in full or partial loss of motor control and nerve sensation. Spinal cord injuries may lead to paralysis in the lower parts of the body (paraplegic) or in all four limbs (quadriplegic).
The spinal cord manages a whole range of bodily functions — body temperature, breathing, and urinary and sexual functioning. Victims can suffer a broad range of permanent and serious health problems.
Spinal Cord Injuries and California Law
As with most of the personal injury lawsuits Kuzyk Law handles, the basis of a car accident injury lawsuit is often negligence. In other words, if the accident happened because of the action or inaction of another party, Kuzyk Law will help you put together a case to prove that the party you sue is at fault. By bringing a negligence case, you may be able to collect money damages for lost wages, lost or decreased future wages, prospective medical care, and ongoing pain and suffering.
These are not easy matters, and require an exhaustive analysis of the facts. Kuzyk Law’s extensive experience in this area makes them the optimal choice for Antelope Valley residents. We serve Palmdale, Lancaster, Little Rock, Pearblossom, Lake Los Angeles, Quartz Hill, Bakersfield, San Bernardino, Los Angeles, and all surrounding communities. When it comes to back injuries, we’ve got your back.
